Beating the system - the cycling commuting section
i'm another commuting laydee - agree its quicker (and nicer) to ride than take public transport, even factoring in taking the kids to school and picking them up again.
I'm a bit hardcore though and will ride come hell or high water (although luckily missed the hail stones a couple of years ago) and would still rather be drenched to the bone and dodging lightening than getting the train. I love it that there's so much space in the bike racks at work in winter (and secretly smug at all the blokes who are fairweather riders only.....)
I have to admit though, the longer i've commuted the less time i spend doing hair and make up and can't remember the last time i blow dried my hair or wore it down.
So. It's all about attitude in my opinion!
Quoting my own post here as an up-date on my situation.....
I now commute to work using my bike....I now work in at South Brisbane, have great bike storage and a locker to stash my gear and my teenager is now driving...and love starting and ending my day with a ride!
And to celebrate I bought a new bike to use just for commuting
Ahyup, that'll be me, rocking the sub-10-second twist / clip move, still damp at 3pm ...
